the answer for us. that's in the "sideshow" tonight. >>> we begin with the revelation by former homeland security secretary tom ridge that top bush administration officials pushed him to raise the terror threat level in the weekend just before the 2004 presidential election. here was the scene that friday before the election in 2004. members of the bush administration's national security team assembled to weigh the u.s. response to a new bin laden videotape. here is how ridge described the meeting. quote, a vigorous some might say dramatic discussion ensued. ashcroft strongly urged an increase in the threat level and was supported by rumsfeld. there was absolutely no support from that position within our department. that's homeland security. none. i wondered, is this about security or politics? post election analysis had demonstrated a significant increase in the president's approval rating in the days after the raising of the threat level t seemed possible to me and others around the table that something could be afoot other than simple skern about the country's safety. the ide

tough to sell on these things. a co-op is really used over three-quarters of the land area of america so we buy our electricity that way. it's a creature of the new deal. it's worked really pretty well overall of the country for 70 or 80 years. it's owned by the customers, not owned by the government. it works. it works real well. there are good ways to solve this problem. i think the key is to be open-minded, to not use alarmist rhetoric, to focus on the real problem of 47 million uninsured americans today. unaffordable health care for everybody and a runaway health care system that does not provide the quality we deserve in america. we can solve any problem we want to in this great country. let's put our minds together and calmly and rationally solve this problem. we can do it and we can do it without a big government solution. >> mr. gingrey injure response? >> my response is i agree with jim. things like association health plans equalizing the tax treatment, making sure people that get their insurance through a small employer our individual market get the same tax benefit,
